Golden State Warriors (2-1) @ Milwaukee Bucks (3-0)

Start time 5:00 PM PST @ The Bradley Center

Probable starters for the Golden State Warriors

PG - Baron Davis
SG - Jason Richardson
SF - Mike Dunleavy
PF - Troy Murphy
C - Adonal Foyle

Probable starters for the Milwaukee Bucks
ImageImageImageImageImage
PG - T.J. Ford
SG - Michael Redd
SF - Bobby Simmons
PF - Jamaal Magloire
C - Andrew Bogut

Team leaders
PPG - J. Richardson (23.0) | M. Redd (31.3)
RPG - T. Murphy (8.5) | A. Bogut (10.7)
APG - B. Davis (7.0) | T. Ford (10.3)
SPG - B. Davis (4.0) | M. Redd (1.7)
BPG - A. Foyle (3.0) | J. Magloire (2.0)

Game Notes
The Warriors enter Milwaukee to see what their ex-assistant, Terry Stotts, has been doing on the east coast. The Bucks are hoping for the return of Joe Smith for this game. Warriors' Andris Biedrins is still questionable while Ike Diogu is still out with a broken hand.

The way the Warriors been playing lately I don't think they can pull this one off especially at Mil. Should be a good game though, if Baron doesn't play then I don't think we have much of a chance.

Baron came out of today's game ok i think, it seemed like he didn't go at 100% though. They can win, but i think they gotta run, dunleavy has to step up big!!

Warriors have to run and shoot well from the outside because they are outmatched inside. Pick them to win by 5-8

I don't think they'll win, but if they show major improvement on the free throw line and 3point% but still lose, I'll be satisfied. If they lose BECAUSE of that I'll be thoroughly pissed!

JRich v Redd will be interesting. Redd doesn't guard anyone so JRich will have an easier time having a good game but if he can slow down Redd, the Warriors' chances are good.

If Murphy takes either Magliore or Bogut outside because of his shooting, that will also be an advantage because it will open up the lane for drives and will make it easier for the Warriors to rebound, as long as someone else other than Murphy wants to rebound for the Warriors

I'm guessing Warriors by around 4 or 5. Milwaukee's freak twin towers of Bogut and Magloire have yet to prove that they can be dominant together, Mike Redd will grab points & three's (but do nothing else for them), and TJ Ford's been a wizard so far. However, with Baron back in the lineup, the Warriors seem to play at a higher level (along with JRich being a star so far this season). Murph's got his work cut out with boarding against Bogut and Magloire, but he's a rebound hound, so I think he'll be okay. Warriors by about 4.

Warriors by 6, if Baron plays. If not, Bucks by 10.

As much as I wanted Baron to play in the Knicks game, he shouldn't have played. It's too early in the season for Baron to play on injuries and a hammy pull is nothing to play around with. It can easily get aggravated and Baron get can really hurt, he should have rested for a week. W's shouldn't have to depend on Baron, but we do as we saw an expected win against the Jazz turn upside down w/o him. It's sad to say the W's are nothing without Baron. It's going to be a real task for Baron's hammy when he as to guard the super speedy TJ Ford. This game will be a true test to see how good the Warriors really are this season. Last season the 2 games we had against Milwaukee we struggled and the the score was in the 100's eventhough we pulled out as winners. Remember the Bucks have a completely new lineup adding bulk, power, speed and skill.

I think this is easily the toughest team the warriors have faced so far, we could get destroyed on the boards, so I am picking the bucks by 5. But all bets are off if B Diddy is feeling better

Let's hope BD comes back healthier than last game and Dun regains his stroke.
